Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Non-Fiction Book Report - Section 2: Application


As beneficial an activity as this is, I'd have to say that this step is not necessary in the scheme of Non-fiction Book Report.  The kids moaned at the additional practice (that followed the warm up,) and although the idea is a good one- to relate non-fiction text to something in their own lives- it doesn't contribute to the objective of their eventual Newspaper Book Report. 

Summed up- this is a good activity for a different time.
